About a decade ago, RGB interior lighting began to offer adjustable ambience and brand identity in some premium cars. Then came dynamic lighting effects for different scenarios, like welcome light effects and driver alerts in emergency situations such as pre-collision and blind spot warning.
But RGB ambient lighting installations can be complicated and costly, needing lareg investments in measurement equipment for RGB calibration during the SMT process, high component counts, and complex designs for each lighting module. Moreover, it grows unwieldy and unfeasible for systems comprising more than 100 LEDs.
Now, automotive LED supplier Dominant are offering a new package family called seddLED (Smart Embedded Digital Driver LED), which they call the world's first true digital LED integrating RGB LEDs, drivers, and advanced communication links in a single package.
